To do kernel debugging in windows, it is recommended that you have 2 computers - one to be the host, the other the target system. Rather than physically connect two computers, I was thinking of running the target os as the guest in a virtual machine.
After a quick look-see on the web, I came across VMware, but was quickly put off by the pricetag (~$280US), so I started looking at open source alternatives. VirtualBox seems like a good, stable option, but I thought I'd ask around for other opinions.
Has anyone here used any VM software, either the two I listed above, or something else?
Hooray for replies!
I will definitely check out those free products from VMware before deciding; to be honest, as soon as I saw the pricetag for workstation, I left that page. As long as I can create new serial ports in the VM, I'm good.
